The chief of the IRS United in charge of criminal investigations, Richard Weber, said he expected indictments.

“I’m fairly confident we will have another round of indictments,” he was quoted as saying by the York Times.

Weber added: “I don’t think there was ever a decision or a declaration we would go after soccer.
